Glass straws - the most important features
Glass straws are one of the most popular variants among reusable straws. Made of break-resistant and thermal shock-resistant borosilicate glass, they are an extremely durable and practical alternative to plastic disposables. Due to its special properties, borosilicate glass is much more durable than standard glass. Its low thermal conductivity makes glass drinking tubes suitable for the consumption of both cold and hot drinks. They can also be washed in a dishwasher or by hand with a special cleaner. Thanks to the unique parameters of borosilicate glass, reusable glass straws are an investment for many years.
Advantages of glass straws:
- Glass straws are a reusable product
- Durable thanks to the use of borosilicate glass
- They do not conduct heat
- They do not change the taste of the drink
- Glamorous and elegant
- Safe for health, do not contain harmful compounds
- Environmentally safe, recyclable
- Smooth and rounded edges ensure comfort of use
Properties of borosilicate glass
Good quality glass drinking straws should be made of borosilicate glass. Borosilicate glass, due to the high content of silicon dioxide in relation to ordinary glass, shows much greater resistance to cracks, scratches and mechanical damage. Borosilicate glass drinking straws are also resistant to thermal shock and will not break during sharp changes in temperature due to the presence of boron in the melt. The third most important feature of borosilicate glass is its chemical resistance, thanks to which the glass and the chemicals with which it comes into contact do not penetrate each other. Therefore, the use of glass drinking straws is completely safe for health.
Glass drink tubes are widely used in gastronomy and in home use. As reusable straws, they are more and more often used in bars and restaurants, which, in the light of the new regulations on plastic disposables, are looking for an ecological and durable alternative to plastics.
Glass straws are also great at home. Due to their durability, they can replace hundreds of plastic pipes, which translates into savings in the long run. However, their elegant and effective design means that glass straws for drinks can be an additional decorative function of the drink and the table.
